Ahead of Jurgen Klopp return fixture against his former club, Dortmund, his agent Marc Kosicke has spoken about how he fits in at Liverpool.
Kosicke has pointed toward the coincidences of how Klopp’s two previous clubs including Mainz also sung ‘You’ll never walk alone’.
“It’s a pretty good match,” he told Goal.com
“It’s a bit like destiny that it has been Liverpool the new club for Klopp. Every club where Jurgen was manager until now the fans singing “You’ll never walk alone” before the games. It was like that in Mainz and Dortmund. And Liverpool is the cradle of that song.”
Klopp wanted to have a longer holiday with his family and also do research in the United States, but decided to cut it short to join the Reds.
“We had the feeling that we could imagine Jurgen to be a candidate there if something happens. Then Brendan Rodgers was sacked and the CEO contacted us. He asked for a meeting with Jurgen and the owners if we are interested,” he added.
“He found Liverpool very interesting but we had a bit of free time ahead of us and some other plans. He wanted to go to the Caribbean with his family, watch the Super Bowl and go skiing. We also had planned an educational trip to the USA to look at other sports.”
Liverpool managed to prize Klopp ahead of many famous clubs such as Real Madrid and Chelsea who sacked their coach’s midway through their respective seasons too. Though, the Reds acted faster to make sure they get him in first.
